The Zendaya Barbie is the latest custom Barbie doll created to immortalize a celebrity or iconic personality.
The Zendaya Barbie is dressed in the white Vivienne Westwood gown and long, lustrous dreadlocks that caused a stir on the 2015 Academy Awards red carpet. Zendaya Barbie made her debut at the 'VH1 Save the Music foundation Rock 'n Royals' concert experience, which was hosted in collaboration with Mattel. Designed by Mattel Barbie designer Carlyle Nuera and painstakingly assembled by a team of hair stylists, makeup artists and sewers, the Zendaya Barbie is a total triumph, beautifully replicating the teenage sensation's unique style.
Zendaya expressed her delight with her doll look-alike on Instagram, posting a picture of herself with her mini-me along with the caption, "When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my...how times have changed."
